Here’s something we can all look forward to from our very own Filipina-Japanese professional golfer Yuka Saso, palanggas. She will be participating in the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour next month in Southeast Asia, with stops in Singapore and Thailand.

But before the tournaments, as a sign of her love for the Philippines, the 20-year-old champion golfer made sure to visit Manila for a series of activities, which included a courtesy call with AXA Philippines executives and a few rounds at local golf courses.

Yuka was also recently announced as the newest partner of leading global insurer AXA. This partnership resonates with the brand’s “Know You Can” spirit, which is rooted in the understanding that confidence is essential for people to successfully achieve their goals like Yuka has, dahlings.

Cheers to Yuka, and good luck on her upcoming tournaments!

Exciting times

for online shopping!

Exciting times are up ahead for my palanggas who are into online shopping and selling.

Carousell Philippines is all set to create innovations and strengthen its proposition for 2022, dahlings.

One of Carousell’s initial developments this year is the merging of Property24 with Carousell. This will provide an effective online platform for leading real estate developers, agencies and brokers to help them showcase their property listings to a wider audience of qualified prospective buyers, including the 4.62 million monthly visitors on Carousell.

“This is something that we’ve been planning forever since OLX merged with Carousell Philippines. We have taken in various feedback from our partners, developers and users to make our property category even better,” said Carousell Philippines new general manager Djon Nacario, who shared the upcoming plans, innovations, business prospects, and directions of Carousell for the year in a recent media event.

Carousell also launched its first-ever Carousell Property Awards in March 2022 featuring some of the most celebrated real estate brands in the Philippines including Suntrust, Camella, Crown Asia and Lumina, among other leading developers.

Planning to buy a pre-loved car? Here’s great news. With over 6,000 cars listed on the platform as of February 2022,  Djon also expounded on Carousell’s recent tie-up with Premium Warranty Services Philippines, Inc. (PWSPI), the premier provider of used vehicle inspection and warranty services in the country, to launch the Carousell Autos Inspected and Warranty program, which is designed to provide buyers of second-hand cars confidence and peace of mind when searching for vehicles in the Carousell platform.

Not only that, palanggas, Carousell will also launch Caroupreneur Awards, recognizing the outstanding Filipino entrepreneurs over the past year, ranging from online MSMEs to brick-and-mortar SMEs who digitalized their businesses, and everyday Filipinos who gave away good quality pre-loved items for free.

That’s a lot to look forward to if you’re planning to buy a new home, a pre-loved car or want to get a head start in selling online. Happy online shopping!
